TURIN – If you can’t beat them, buy them. That appears to be Juventus’ philosophy as they continue their quest for the Champions League title.
In 2018, Cristiano Ronaldo scored for Real Madrid against Juventus to eliminate the Serie A champions from Europe’s premier club competition.
A few months later, Juventus signed him.
This year, Matthijs de Ligt scored the goal that eliminated Juventus from the Champions League in April as he captained Ajax to the semi-finals.
On Thursday, Juventus signed the Netherlands defender.
